Cancer is Increasing in People 50 and Under!

The lifestyle of people born after 1970 can explain much of the rise in early onset cancers. Since 1970 people experience more early exposure to less sleep, fast food meals, sugary drinks, and sedentary ways....and now people 50 and younger are suffering more early onset cancers than before.

Physician and Harvard Medical professor Dr. Shuji Ogino speaks of results from research at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston . "Cancerous factors including Western-style Diet, Excessive red meat, animal fats and a lack of exercise." He says since childhood, their lives have been filled with less sleep, more sugar and highly processed food. But he says there's hope. "Nothing is too late! You can change now and cut down on the risk!"

Cancer Inches Toward Killing More People Than Heart Disease

Research lead Dr. Ogino says research found cancers of the breast, colon, esophagus, kidney, liver, and pancreas are on the increase in this age group. But there is hope for you and your children who watch closely what you do. "You can cut the risk by taking a Healthy Lifestyle for yourself! Kids will watch what you do!"

Dr. Ogino repeats- You can lower your risk.
